PROTOCOL OUTLINE: This is a three month, randomized, double blind, placebo controlled study followed by a nine month, open label, rollover study.
Patients are treated either with a placebo vehicle cream or the study cream, monolaurin (15% glyceryl monolaurate), for 3 months followed by a four week break.
